Best midfielders in FIFA 22: Great CAMs, CDMs and CMs to sign in season one

When you need to strengthen your midfield, you need to do it fast. Below is a rundown of some of the funniest CAMs, CDMs, and CMs you can subscribe to in Career Mode Season XNUMX.



  • Denis Zakaria – CM/CDM – Borussia Monchengladbach – £30,5m Valor – 24 – An expensive option despite his relegation to FIFA 22, Denis Zakaria has incredible stats, combining 80 pace, stamina, strength, passing and defense with an almost Quadro of 6 feet and 3”. Capable of stopping even the best attackers, you can shape Zakaria even more thanks to his starting potential.
  • Nicholas De la Cruz – CM/CAM – River Plate – £22m Value – 24 – Another expensive signing but worth every penny, train Nicolas De la Cruz's defense and you've got a superb N'golo Kante-style midfielder on your hands. With key stats ranging from 74 standing tackle at the bottom end to 93 stamina at the top, he is a top quality addition to any midfield in world football.
  • Renato Sanches – CM – Lille – £33m Valor – 23 – After a few years in the football desert, Renato Sanches has returned to the spotlight boasting incredible stats everywhere you could want. Mobile enough to turn defense into offense with ease, it has 4-star engine trait and abilities.
  • Alexis Claude-Maurice – CM/CAM – Nice – £16,5m Value – 23 – For a slightly cheaper option that is a little further under the radar, Alexis Claude-Maurice is similar to the previous midfielders listed, but in the middle of them – slightly more slower than De la Cruz, but stronger, not as powerful as Zakaria, but more agile. Train your defensive skills and stamina with your starting potential growth of +6 and you'll have a great all-rounder.
  • Jens-lys Cajuste – CDM/CM – FC Midtjylland – Value £5m – 21 – With +10 starting potential growth and plenty of key stats on the cusp of greatness, Jens-lys Cajuste is a solid road to glory signing for many mid-tier clubs. With strength, stamina, passing, dribbling and pace around or approaching 80, he has the aptitude to develop into a complete midfielder.
  • Lewis Ferguson – CM/CDM – Aberdeen – £4,2 million Value – 21 – Another quality Path to Glory pick, Lewis Ferguson starts with 90+ stamina and +11 starting potential growth to round out his other stats. At just 21 years old, he has the qualities to command his midfield for many years to come.
  • Fabio Carvalho – CAM – Fulham – R$ 2,6 million Value – 18 – Who doesn't like the combination of high potential ceiling and cheap fare? Although his starting stats are not good, Fabio Carvalho has 86 potential to improve them quickly.
  • Kacper Kozlowski – CAM/CM – Pogon Szczecin – Value £3 million – 17 – If you are working on a smaller budget but still want good coverage in the middle of the park, Kacper Kozlowski has a lot of potential and a lot of stat keys around 70.
  • Samuele Ricci – CM/CDM – Empoli – £2,6m Valor – 19 – For a touch of Italian talent in midfield on a modest budget, Samuele Ricci has mid-70s passes and stamina to try and control the game. Also, despite its cheaper rate, it also has 84 starting potential.
